Biceps still meet the standard.
She is probably running from a football player
The final staff hire will be LB
If so then Joseph on corners, Gideon on safeties and Banks on the ST/TE
Lupoi is officially out there, but he made it pretty clear he wants to stay in the NFL (unless he was the DC)
I pulled some of the Q&As from the Coack PK interview
Banks is a Jedi and clearly played a key role in luring Coach PK away from the West Coast, so some of you are just going to have to learn to tolerate the pole and the monkey
Did you know Sark previously?
I’ve known him in recruiting, a long time ago, in Orange County and L.A. Having coached with Justin (Wilcox) … Coach Wilcox and him worked together, so I’ve gotten to know him that way. And obviously competing against each other.
You helped recruit the state of Texas for UW. Did you spend much time in Austin?
I’ve been to Austin one time to visit the University of Texas, back when Mack Brown was coach and Will Muschamp was the DC. And then all the other times I’ve been there were for recruiting. I’d fly in or drive over from Dallas to go to a school and watch a kid practice or something, and I was out. I don’t know much about it other than I stayed downtown, drove through some neighborhoods, been through a couple high schools.
Could you get a sense of how different the football culture is there?
You can say that about the Midwest, the South. There’s definitely a different engagement from the fans. It’s just more of … it’s in their blood, you know? Some people say it’s like church for a lot of them. For whatever reason, it just means more to the fans in those parts of the country.
Is that part of the draw to Texas?
That all wears off. To me, coaching is about relationships and getting guys to get better. Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve always had good experiences because I’ve had great relationships with good people, and it’s been no different here at Washington, and I’m expecting to build the same type of deal at Texas with the guys there and the players there. To me, that’s what it’s always been about.
Way back when I was getting out of college, I was going to be a schoolteacher and I wanted to enjoy going to work and doing what I’m doing, and not have it be work on a day-in, day-out basis. I was fortunate enough to be able to get into college football. Everywhere I’ve been, it always comes back to the relationships, the friendships and working toward something with other guys, young and old.
Who do you know on staff there?
I know Jeff Banks and Torre Becton, the strength coach. Torre was here. And I’ve known Jeff for a long time, way back in our Big Sky days, hanging out together, recruiting.
What was that first call with Sark like?
“What’s up, man? How we doing?” Just real casual. We just really chopped it up. Nothing different than talking to an acquaintance or friend.
What was the biggest difference between this opportunity and some others over the years?
It’s the University of Texas. I know Sark. I know guys who have coached with Sark. I know a couple guys on the staff, so I have a good feel for the culture and what it’s going to be like working with all these guys. And then I paired that with, I’ve been here seven years, and I wasn’t opposed to going out and doing something to start over. That’s what it really boiled down to.
Some people think Joseph is the softest hire
But he was in demand
that was real straight shooting. no smoke. no rah rah to the fans. didn't gush about UT, Texas, or Sark. I loved that.
Disturbing news about our new coach. He admitted that he has yet to have any BBQ since arriving in Austin. He hasn't had time to get out and about in the community.
This is not on the Steve, but the support staff. Is there no one that can go get him lunch?
Well Ain’t got nobody in Austin but my brother lives in Houston! I can get him to deliver some Roegells BBQ!!
What is up with all this thieving?
Former Texas WR Mike Davis is trying to get a position on staff
He has been working as a private WR coach in the LT area for the last few years.
We should probably cross this guy off the list for our LB coach search:
Ex-Texas high school football coach jailed on drug charge
He was Lufkin's LB coach and "recruiting coordinator."
He will be at blow/u next year.
He wants to live longer!
Lufkin High has a recruiting coordinator?
Can't let Diboll, Huntington, Zavalla, Weches, Apple Springs have all the Blue Chips.
I know. Go figure...
Now Southlake Carroll, on the other hand, I've heard has a history of recruiting like a major college program.
For anyone on these boards who has recently moved to Texas from California or up North, we tend to take high school football rather seriously in these parts...
I strongly protest the use of the word "rather"
a matter of life and death
"rather" is the word you use when your wife or girlfriend tells you she wants you to take her to the newest chick flick.
I know! WTF?
sounds like Langhi is back
Hmm, anyone got an opinion on this? https://247sports.com/Article/Texas-Football-Mike-Stoops-expected-to-be-hired-as-linebackers-coach-Steve-Sarkisian-Alabama-Oklahoma-159723857/
We had one coach to go and ugh!
Yep, poop me if you want, but I don't want Mike Stoops at Texas.
You left off Alto.
not to mention Crockett, Trinity & Grapeland!
Hopefully he has brakes
Appears Stoops is official.
I wish him all the best.
